Rye Mayor Appoints Citizen Group to Study Need for Greater Controls on Rock Chipping
Rye Mayor Joe Sack today named seven members of the Rye community to a special rock chipping study group. They are: Councilman Richard Mecca and Councilman Richard Slack, who will serve as co-chairs of the group, as well as Andrew Dabinett, Mal Durkee, Jim Hedges, Sue O’Brien and Al Vitiello.
The group will study, among other items, whether new or more restrictive limitations should be placed on hours, duration, decibel levels, on-site crushing, and amounts which may be removed, as well as whether greater efforts should be taken to control dust, noise, erosion, and water runoff, and to enhance safety.
“Rock chipping can be an extremely disruptive ordeal for neighbors who live in close proximity to a construction site,” Mayor Sack said. “By forming this group, we’re taking the initiative to strike the right balance in figuring ways to mitigate the impact on our residents going forward.”
Mayor Sack asked that the group complete its work and prepare options for the City Council’s consideration by December 31st.
